We are delighted that our Migrants on the margins educational resources were finalists in the Free Digital Content or Open Educational Resources category of the 2020 Bett Awards.
The annual awards celebrate the inspiring creativity and innovation that can be found throughout technology for education, and form an integral part of the Bett Show – the world’s leading showcase of education technology solutions.
Our Migrants on the margins resources, which are supported by the Global Learning Programme, draw upon our Field Research Programme and illustrate migration through the personal stories of migrants in the cities of Colombo, Dhaka, Harare and Hargeisa. Including a set of posters, videos, podcasts and comic books, the resources, which are suitable for KS3, GCSE and A Level, focus on a number of key concepts, including internal migration, how cities are changing and why people move.
Professor Michael Collyer, Principal Researcher for the Migrants on the margins research project, hopes their work will help improve the lives of migrants in their neighbourhoods and dispel misconceptions around migration. This is a valuable lesson for schools, and the Migrants on the margins learning resources place the contemporary experiences of migrants within reach of the geography classroom.
